A great place to work.
Working with SUPERSTRUCTURES offers the opportunity to advance the art and science of restoration and to help preserve the built environment of one of the greatest cities in the world.
We work on an array of building types, including courthouses, schools, universities, churches, and hospitals, and many of New York’s most storied landmarks, from Trinity Church to Grand Central Terminal. Our work embraces all components of the building envelope and underlying structure—facades, roofs, windows, and plazas—and the full complement of materials, from historic Terra-cotta to high-performance curtain walls. We’re proud to be an industry leader in crucial practice areas like Local Law 11 inspections and repairs. We’ve won numerous awards, as well as the loyalty of many of the premier public, corporate, and residential clients in the region.
If your passion, experience, and skill set align with our area of practice, this is truly one of the best places you could work. We offer career opportunities at all levels for architects, structural engineers, and conservators who share our dedication to the preservation of buildings and infrastructure.
From time to time, we advertise specific openings (on platforms such as Craigslist and Indeed) but we are always on the lookout for qualified, enthusiastic applicants.
Large-firm resources; small-studio culture.
We work on a variety of challenging projects, from the preservation of 19th century landmarks to high performance curtain walls and multi-acre roofs. In a single year, you might work on one of each.
You’ll work as part of a small team assigned to projects based on synergies between job requirements and the capabilities of each team member. This arrangement offers employees the dual advantages of a small office experience coupled with access to the centralized resources of a larger firm. Our teams are supported by some of the most sophisticated technology in the profession, including proprietary computer systems and applications, advanced photography and image processing, and state-of-the-art, non-destructive diagnostic equipment and techniques.
Our team members typically participate in all phases of a project from inception through completion: proposal, investigation, construction documents, bid negotiation, and construction administration. You’ll have the opportunity to see the designs you draw executed in the field, and you’ll take on greater responsibility and client interaction as soon as you are ready.
Frequent lunchtime seminars by industry experts, including our own in-house leaders, offer opportunities to stay current on developments in the profession—plus a free lunch!
Benefits & balance.
SUPERSTRUCTURES offers top-level compensation and the advancement potential of a thriving company. We’re committed to a healthy work/life balance, starting with a 40-hour work week.

Our benefits also include:
- Paid holidays, vacation, and sick days.
- Health insurance options for employees and family.
- 401(k) with automatic employer contribution.
- A continuing education allowance.
- Free monthly MTA MetroCards.
Location, location, location.
Our light-filled Tribeca office is in a landmarked building with 16′ high ceilings, 8′ tall windows, and stunning views of Manhattan in three directions—not a bad place to spend the work day. We’re easily accessible via public transportation: the A, C, and E Canal Street station connects directly to our building’s lobby. The N, R, 1, and 6 lines are all just a few blocks away.
